If you sit for a long time on the bank of the fashionable process, follow the trends and expert advice, then from time to time you can watch the ugly corpses of recent fashionable novelties pass by. Sometimes – along with the corpses of “experts”. Because the fact that just yesterday they were slandered as hopelessly outdated and not having a chance to become relevant again, is suddenly becoming a fashion trend.
For years, stylists, bloggers, and other self-promoted fashion experts have told us that scarves are the day before yesterday. The advice to “add a silk handkerchief” was a kind of meme. The embodiment of an archaic approach, provincial taste and complete isolation from current trends. There was no worse fashionable sin than to tie your hair with a folded handkerchief. It looked so artificial, it smashed like mothballs. A shawl-neck around the neck was considered the favorite accessory of a middle-aged gray-haired lady. This, in which all the fashionable developments belong to the times when The Beatles were still a young promising group.
How many times have the world been told: take a close look at what is considered the most backward, old-fashioned, foolish, rural and ridiculous. Before that, officially appointed a bad taste and sent into oblivion. That is what should be a hot trend right tomorrow.
Handkerchiefs like a hot trend
Something like this happened to these unfortunate shawls. A new generation of girls has grown up, who in their life have never had time to vilify square shawls. They were completely out of the trend! They all wore long scarves and snoods around their necks, and only a rural granny could tie a scarf over her head.
During this time, the fashion world has missed the handkerchiefs and all the dizzying experiments that can be done with them. And therefore they are triumphantly returned!
The square handkerchief, folded in a triangle and tied under a neck on a soft knot or even fastened with a brooch, was again transformed from a mothball to a stylish thing. And so fashionable women of all ages are worn – from the aforementioned gray-haired ladies to female students.
This is the easiest and most common way to wear a square
And it is for him that the time is coming. Spring weather, capricious and unpredictable, and asks to add bright colors closer to the face. And do not wait for this special occasion. Perhaps, before silk scarf and belonged only to the business, elegant style. Maybe he demanded a classic manto, strict suit, heels and all that kind of “serious and status.” But now, in our time of eclecticism and mixing of genres, no one bothers to put on a scarf with a trendy print for a denim jacket, a sweater or a t-shirt, and for any simple, casual dress. A small handkerchief around his neck – under the collar of his shirt unbuttoned. A larger scarf – over a sweater or sweatshirt. A large scarf is under or over the coat. There are lots of options!
You can wear a scarf not only around your neck. You will laugh, but tie a handkerchief on the head in the style of “grandmother on the bench” – this is a very relevant feature. In English, this way of wearing headscarves is called babushka or sometimes matryoshka. But regardless of what gave rise to this style, the fact remains: fashionable divas and guests of Fashion Week wear this way, leading brands offer this in their lookbooks. And it is worth noting: if you combine such a “grandmother’s kerchief” with fashionable, modern things, bright glasses, a stylish bag – you can get an ironic and nontrivial look.
Turban for style and heat
Another way to wear headscarves, less associated with the Slavic visual tradition, rather – with the traditions of East and Africa – is a turban. Turbanov in the world invented a great many. Two of the same does not happen, because even from the same shawl the same turban two times the same does not wrap. Screwing a turban is a little more difficult than just putting a scarf under the neck. But the network is full of instructions and video tutorials on this topic. If this style is inspiring, it is worth practicing – and you will definitely succeed.
And if you don’t have time to bother with a turban? “Grandma’s kerchief” does not inspire? And I want to add some bright note to the image! Then you can use a scarf instead of a hairband. To decorate hair with colored ribbons – this style must have existed since the time when humanity learned to produce colored ribbons. Well, that is a very long time. And this is no accident, the ribbons in the hair add girls and colors, and games, and dynamics. Our ancestors hardly formulated it for themselves, but in practice they saw that ribbons always decorate a girl.
There is nothing easier than to knit a kerchief in a braid or tie it on a bun or tail. Second thing – and the banal daily hairstyle turns into a fashionable statement!
No inspiration to do the styling or the wind on the street such that spoil any styling? Hair is not very fresh and no time to wash them? It is necessary to add a color accent to the image, but the scarf around your neck does not fit? Just tired of everything and want something new? Turn the shawl into a hair band. This new-old fiction in the summer can really help out!
And you can also use a scarf instead of a belt!
A scarf can girdle a dress, jacket, jeans and even a raincoat. And from a small handkerchief you can make a bracelet on your hand or even on your foot! There is no limit to human creativity!
And all these were just ideas for making a slight color accent with a handkerchief. But in fact, a large and bright scarf can become the main character of the image!
Boring monochrome dress? The suit is good, but already a bit tired? Do you want something incredible, wow effect and not for all the money in the world? Here are some ideas for you, where the main role is his majesty a large silk scarf!
How to choose a fashionable scarf?
First of all, do not take this choice too seriously! Scarves does not happen much! They do not wear out and do not lose their presentation for years. Like it – buy, even if you still do not know what you will wear. His hour will surely come.
Of course, a scarf made of natural silk is a thing beyond competition. But light industry does not stand still! The quality of artificial materials is growing every year. Therefore, do not regress in horror from the shawls of polyester or viscose. If they are pleasant to the touch, they have an interesting and relevant print and neatly processed edges – you can safely buy.
Actual prints for scarves: animalistic (leopard, zebra, reptile). Traditional “garter” motifs – stylized elements of horse harness, chains, monograms and ornaments. Geometry, especially peas. And, of course, floral prints. They will not go out of fashion as long as gardens are blooming on earth every spring.
The main thing that you should pay attention to is not as much a print as the color range. A shawl is a thing that, according to its purpose, should be located in close proximity to you. On the neck or on the head – however, the scarf frames the face. Therefore, it should give a face shine, make eyes brighter, shade hair color. Work with such a portable individual photo filter in real time. So you should not choose a scarf for shoes or a bag. Choose a handkerchief to your face, apply it in natural light and see that the handkerchief decorates you, not you.
In the end, from the scarves are not so much practical use, without them, you can safely do. But with them – more fun and interesting, and they can improve the complexion instantly. Well, is it worth refusing this opportunity? We use to the maximum, while shawls in fashion!
